20-30 seconds UI freeze when selecting a music track

Just wondering if this is a known issue or if someone has had the same problem. When I select a music track to play, the UI freezes for 20-30 seconds before the track plays. If there is a track already playing that continues playing. If there is nothing playing, nothing happens for that time period.

Interestingly, if I use the Kodi iOS remote to play a track directly it’s instant. If I use Next/Prev in the Kodi remote or UI it’s also instant.

Makes no sense to me?

Latest Krypton OSMC release; but I think I’ve had this is in older Kodi versions.
